Dear Friends,
is there any good soul who has a detailed TO&E for the italian forces that landed in Crete on May 28th 1941?

I do have scanty informations, that is :
1st Bn/9th Infantry Rgt
2nd bn/10th Infantry Rgt
2 x sailors companies
3rd coy/312th Tank Bn (L3/35)
1 x Infantry Guns battery (65L17)
1 x Anti-Tank company (47L32)
Elements, Carabinieri
Elements. Blackshirts
for a total of : 2500 men, 46 MMGs, 6 81mm Mortars, 18 45mm assault mortars, 6 65/17 and 47/32 guns (I do not know if 6 total or 6+6), 13 L3/35 tankettes, 9 motorcycles, 1 truck, 205 mules.

AFAIK there was an article about the landing on issue #24 or Storia Militare ... but is one of the few issues that I do not have! Maybe there is some detailed information there.

http://www.pietrocri...ia-militare.htm check numbers 54, 55, 58 might help.

DIli, thanks a lot for the assist but, alas, in both articles there are even less details that the (few) ones that I have!

Thanks anyway.

Is there anybody who has something more?
